Abstract

Report presents the methodology and results of experimental software developed to produce an efficient and effective mechanism whereby battalion, company, and platoon command entities controlled by computer generated forces systems can efficiently generate routes with minimal length and exposure to enemy fire. The new unit route planning algorithm is based on a novel abstraction called the Obstacle Segment Abstraction (OSA), combining the OSA with two route planning approaches, regular grid and vertex graph.
